Living in the Now
A husband or a wife comes home and, while greeted by their mate with a tender embrace, thinks of what happened at work, plans they made for the next day or how much the other angered them the day before. This can also occur in other relationships. Many interactions with loved ones are not treasured because of not focusing on the present.
Our adversary constantly tempts us to either think about tomorrow’s possible heartaches and pains or remember those of our past. He does so to steal the joy we can experience in the here and now. Missing priceless moments and letting valuable times of happiness pass by often happens unknowingly.
What is happening around us right now? Do we enjoy people and conversations to the fullest by intentionally abiding in the present? Giving our full attention to what comes our way takes an intentional purpose of the heart and the enabling of the Spirit of Christ. As we seek the Lord in the now, He helps us enjoy His abundant blessings, moment by moment, from glory to glory.As we seek the Lord in the now, He helps us enjoy His abundant blessings, moment by moment.
